Repot Temperate Bonsai Now

This is the PERFECT time to repot your temperate bonsai! Those are the trees that require a winter dormancy (tropicals get repotted in summer). Once the buds break and the leaves are out, it’s too late. You’ll want to use a fast-draining water-retentive mix specifically designed for bonsai. We have multiple soil mixes available at […]

Scotch Pine Literati

Scotch Pine Literati

This Scotch Pine (Pinus sylvestris) is rather tall. Its most interesting feature is the hollow base that has worn away with time. Bringing the foliage closer to the focal point wasn’t possible, so we brought the focal point closer to the foliage, and had a lot of fun with a rotary tool in the process!

Repotted Japanese Maple Root-Over-Rock

Repotted Japanese Maple Root-Over-Rock

This Japanese Maple group was planted over a rock and left to grow in a field back in 1955. A year ago we did a little spring cleaning on it, and it grew very strongly. This weekend it was repotted, and one of the wild blueberry bushes was removed. The roots and rock are completely […]

A New Trident Maple Forest

A New Trident Maple Forest

The Material Today we created a forest planting of Trident Maples (Acer buergerianum). The primary tree had been growing in sphagnum moss with virtually no fibrous roots; essentially a large hardwood cutting.

Spring Cleaning A Japanese Maple

Spring Cleaning A Japanese Maple

This weekend we did a little bit of spring cleaning on the dormant hardy bonsai. Japanese Maples only push growth from their internodes. That means when you prune them back, the remaining branch will die back to its closest internode, where new buds will break. This die-back doesn’t hurt the tree, but it can look […]
